Andrew Rattray – MD – Bookmark Remainders
I have been working with A38 now for 21 years, during that time the overall service has been very smooth. The hosting for my online wholesale book business has helped create new leads and increase sales all within my budget. A38 sourced the online catalogue for my type of business and developed my site using it. The software has proved very reliable and user friendly over the years. I would have no hesitation recommending, and have recommended, A38 for any online project that you may have.
